ABOUT

Been making music since childhood. Have performed professionally and (much more often) as an amateur. Enjoy making music (singing - 2nd tenor/baritone and rhythm guitar) with others who want to sound great. I would also be interested in joining a piano player for piano lounge type vocals.

Currently play in church and am a regular at karaoke, which I take seriously. I've also got ample choral experience and can read music.

Am interested in bands (probably covers at this point - various kinds, though bluegrass would probably be a good fit for me as well) and even developing a vocal/piano lounge-type act mixing classic piano ballads with more modern piano songs. Eventually I'd like to gig.

Influences

I was a college radio DJ for 4 years and have a semi-encyclopedic knowledge of music from 1955-2005. So all listed influences are broadly conceived - there aren't any kinds of music I wholly dislike.

Primary Influences:
1) Singer/songwriters, both piano (Billy Joel, Rufus Wainwright, Joe Jackson, classic lounge) and folk/country guitar (Shawn Colvin, Indigo Girls, Margo Price)

2) 80s/90s College Rock (Morrissey/Smiths, Bob Mould, R.E.M., Jeff Buckley)

Other influences:
3) Bluegrass, Folk/Alt Country (AKUS, Nickel Creek, Dwight Yoakam, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Joshua Hedley)

4) Soft Rock/Yacht Rock (Andrew Gold, Little River Band)

5) Classic Rock (Bruce Springsteen, The Who)

6) Punk (Black Flag, Fugazi)

7) Hip Hop (Kanye, Ice Cube)
